After you’ve placed your order, you will be redirected over a secure Internet connection to our payment service providers, where you will be guided through the final steps to complete your order.

We ship all our products from a central warehouse. To help you plan your order, we use a set of simple status symbols to indicate an item’s stock level.
Safescan stock status symbols
Green – The item is in stock and ready to ship! Orders placed before 3:00pm MST are shipped the same day.
Orange – The item is currently sold out, but we expect to have it in stock very soon. You can pre-order the item, and as soon as it arrives at our warehouse, we’ll ship it to you.
Red – The item is currently sold out and we don’t expect to have it in stock again soon.

Account blocked after 3 incorrect login attempts
For your security, your account will be blocked for 30 minutes if the wrong password is entered three times in a row. To access your account, wait 30 minutes and try again, or use the “Forgot your password?” option to reset your password.
Forgot your password?
If you’ve forgotten your password, click here or on the link on the login screen. Enter your e-mail address and we’ll send you a link you can use to reset your password.
In each product category, you can use the product advisor on the left side of the page to filter the items shown based on your criteria. The product advisor is a good way to narrow down your search when you know what functionality you need, but are not sure which product you should buy.
Once you submit your order, we set aside the in-stock items you’ve bought. If any items are out of stock, we’ll hold your order until they arrive, then ship all your items together. That way, we make sure you get your products as quickly as possible.
If it ends up taking longer than expected for an out-of-stock item to arrive, we’ll contact you and ask you how you’d like to proceed. We can do one of three things for you:
- Cancel the out-of-stock item and ship the remaining items right away.
- Ship the in-stock items now and send the outstanding item as soon as it arrives.
- Cancel your entire order.
Canceling an order
If you’d like to a cancel an order that hasn’t shipped yet, please contact us.
If you’d like to cancel an order that has already shipped, please refuse delivery at your door. FedEx will then return the order to us, at which point we can cancel it and issue you a refund.
